an anagram of former means “anagram of former”. I’m not sure why that is. Just thought I’d throw that out there.
So it’s clear from the title that this is an anagram of former. However, the word former doesn’t seem to be used in the title at all. It’s a common word used in the title of an anagram that has nothing to do with the word former.
This is another one of those examples that I can’t help but notice is a bit misleading. The word former has a specific meaning, and the word former is used as an anagram of the word former. However, the word former isn’t used in the title of the anagram.
For instance, this anagram has the word “former” in the title, but it doesnt use the word “former” in the definition. This is one more example of how something you dont expect in a title can be misleading, but it sure as heck isn’t misleading when you notice it later.
The term anagram is a noun derived from the verb a-gram-ing, or “to anagram.” It refers to a process of finding and using alternate spellings of a word or phrase.
An anagram is something that is spelled out in a sentence and used as an alternate spell. In our recent anagram, the word former is spelled out (the word former isnt used in the title), but the definition is included as a list of words, and then the word former is used as an anagram. That is why it is used as a verb, it is used to spell something out.
As a noun, it means “not”. When we say the word “invented”, we refer to it as “invention”, but it is used as a verb, it is not considered to be a noun.
As anagram, like a noun, it means not. When we say the word invented, we refer to it as invention, but it is used as a verb, it is not considered to be a noun.
In order to come up with anagrams, you have to think of a word that is both an idea and an anagram. So while we can’t just use a word to spell out a phrase, we can use it to spell out a sentence, but then anagrams are like a sentence in that you can’t just spell it out. Anagrams are like anagrams in that they can be used to tell a story.
